Thank you Mr. Cricket for your nice post. I agree with your most points but could not agree with the above quoted paragraph.

We don't want to go backwards and allow mediocre players to make their name in international cricket and again brand Bangladesh as 'no hopers'. We need to play our talented inconsitent players and pick some wins among some defeats. We can expect these talented inconsitent players will become consistent or eventually replaced by talented consistent players.

I can still feel the pain when we have won 3 game out of 99 ODI with a good bunch of mediocre players. I don't want to see similar stats again even in my wildest dreams. Mind it, depth, ability only counts when you win.
You only play good cricket when you win/draw matches.
I am with Bangladesh, whether they win or lose .
